Re: Was my husband's episode vasovagal?

From: S. Converse


Sounds almost exactly like my VVS episodes. A tilt-table test seems to be the definitive diagnostic tool for VVS so, personally, I would recommend it. I've had three, one without medication and two while they adjusted my medication (Atenolol and Zoloft). I have had one episode since going on the medication but it was not nearly as severe and I didn't pass out. See my post about naproxen sodium. Hope this helps!
